Rockeries are a lot of work. John Woolman (seen here with his wife Edith & grandson John) built the first rockery.
Some plants grow out of proportion and less vigorous plants get lost and in 1973 the rockery was re-planted.
In 1992 my brother John re-planted the rockery and added a second path through it. He also altered the area in front of the house.

In 2015 it was time for a bit more remedial work, especially in the area of the overgrown "dwarf" conifers on the right hand side in front of the bank.
